Update: 1:30PM YASAWA villagers are benefitting from a voluntourism program established by Nadi-based Awesome Adventures.

Vinaka Fiji, set up in 2010, entices tourists to our shores to get involved in holiday programs that include assisting in education, agriculture, water supply and marine conservation projects in the Yasawa Group.

One of Vinaka Fiji's primary goals is to secure safe and clean drinking water for 27 villages.

Operations manager Elenoa Nimacere said so far, with the participation of volunteers and villagers, 11 villages have access to 28 clean drinking water systems.

"The water tank project has been a big help to the village," said Sakaraia, the Nacula Village administrator.

Coconut trees and creping plants have been planted in Kese Village on Naviti Island to stop riverbank erosion.
